Painkillers Abuse

Did you know that acetaminophen found in Tylenol as well as other prescription and non-prescription products can lead to liver failure if taken in excess?
The Food and Drug Administration has actually recommended lowering the maximum allowed dose, and products only containing acetaminophen prescription are allowed, banning others.
The concern is that many people still take the drug unknowingly in cold medicines or other preparations.
Always check with your doctor!
